Playlist 19.10.09

Stuart Bailie | 14:40 UK time, Tuesday, 20 October 2009

The Feelies were college rock before anyone really knew what college rock was. They were too nerdish for punk and they jangled in a rather sublime fashion that couldn't compare that much to the Velvet Underground. But still this combo from New Jersery had the alternative gumption in them. They used intelligence for their own ends and weren't compelled to go the macho way of other NJ barnstormers. They wore jumpers and murmured softly. Which is probably why early REM were intrigued and why Peter Buck co-produced the bands' second album, 'The Good Earth'. I really didn't like that record when it came out in 1986, but it makes sense to me now.
